Upgrade from Banner 8.x to Banner 9.x

IT has begun a year long project to upgrade Banner 8 to Banner 9.   This will include upgrading the Administrative piece of Banner (formerly Banner Forms) and Banner Self-Service (formerly EKUDirect).   Ellucian is requiring all Banner schools to be completely on Banner 9 by December 30, 2018.  According to Ellucian, "Banner 9 by Ellucian is no ordinary upgrade.  It delivers a fresh user experience, all new tools, and significantly improved capabilities across Banner, driving new efficiencies so you can focus on student success."
